'09 | Paul Blart: Mall Cop

Classic underdog story. Kevin James is great as the humbly plump Paul Blart, but its too predictable and at time boring. Would have been a great 90s film though; Home Alone meets Jingle All the Way meets Ernest Goes somewhere.

411| Michael Vick freed

The former Atlanta Falcons quarterback has been released from the Kansas prison he had called home since being convicted of organizing an illegal dogfighting ring. He will remain confined to this house for a period of time and is looking forward to beginning a campaign with animal activists to deter youth from the illegal sport. More here @ CNN. Being a pet owner myself, I understand the severity of the situation. But i still felt this story was blown out of proportion. One of my professors was amazed at how the media and regular human beings were bombarding Vick and his name for the then-alleged charges; yet, a human life is taken and we sit look with pity as we continue living our lives. What happened to the media frenzy for Oscar Grant, which you have not heard about since. I'm not saying we should just allow the senseless killing of any creature, but why do we seem to place value on certain lives over others.

SOS | You're hotter than a summer day in California

Perfect track for a summer jam. The original is dope, but this bumps for the jeeps. Remember when those were the rides to have; with the no doors.

'87 | When you go, they stay with me until the end

I vaguely remember hearing this as a kid, and then came across it a few months ago. Video is sooooooo 80s, but the song was a big hit for Herb Alpert. Again that Jam/Lewis combination w/ Janet on the hook = DIAMOND
They just don't DANCE like they use to in videos these days.

LOL | Slumdog Price is Right

Much needed laughter this morning from CollegeHumor via TSS.

'94 | Everytime I'm with you

Before she was Misdemeanor, Melissa Elliott was 1/4 of the group Sista. Structured as the female version of Jodeci by producer Devante Swing, the ladies had "Brand New" as the debut single off their never released album 4 All the Sistas Around Da World. Song goes hard; enjoy the remix as well with special guest the late great Static.
